English scientists have taught drones to fly in the dark
Have you ever wondered how mosquitoes fly in the dark? And why don't they stumble upon trees and walls? After all, the organs of vision or echolocation, like bats, these insects of the diptera do not use. Researchers at the University of Leeds in the UK understood the mechanism of “night vision” of mosquitoes, calling it an “aerodynamic image,” Science writes.
Insects in the dark use streams of air created by the flapping of their own wings. The jets of air change pressure and speed when an obstacle appears in front, and the mosquito feels these changes thanks to Johnston's organ - a set of receptors at the base of the “antennas” on the head. The maximum distance that a mosquito can “feel” is about 20 lengths of its wings. It was previously believed that this spatial gap is smaller.
Scientists have created a mechanical analog of the mechanism - a set of probes and sensors that record pressure drops. The development is inexpensive and reliable, it can be used on drones. The tests of the new system fixed to the drone were successful, the aircraft detected obstacles in the dark and circled them.
England will allow meetings in parks and sports games
“Boris Johnson announced a“contingent plan ” for opening a society after quarantine, which from this Wednesday will allow the inhabitants of England to spend more time on the street. They outline to permit residents to go out without time limits — for physical training, relaxing in parks and sports (the latter only with those who live together), ” the massage said.
Also, citizens who do not live together will be permitted to meet, provided that it will be in the parks and in compliance with 2 meters of the distance. Workers who, by the nature of their work, cannot work from home will be able to return to work. But the rest is asked to keep on to work remotely. People are asked, as before, not to leave home unnecessarily and to avoid travel by public transport.
While this is a preliminary plan, the final decision should appear before the end of Monday.
Plans set to ramp up coronavirus testing in Leeds.
UK government is planning to increase the number of testing in Leeds with new drive-thru testing centers at Temple Green Park and Ride. The plans are set to conduct at least 1,000 tests a day at this center. These testing centers have been opened to test more and more workers in the city. Leeds City Council has reported that over 57,000 health workers will be assigned to expand testing at this drive-thru center. Mobile testing units and kits will be sent to the center to ramp up coronavirus testing.
The government has announced that anyone above 65 and key workers showing any symptoms of COVID-19 can take the test at this center. Currently, 1,300 cases have been confirmed of coronavirus along with 358 fatalities between March 27 and April 28.
In Britain, the corona virus has caused a deficiency of pets
Britain has faced an acute deficiency of domestic animals due to the virus. Lonely British who found themselves in isolation lined up to get pets.
According to breeders, need for animals has raised to 140 percent in April. At the same time, one can not even hope to get the long-awaited friend so quick - waiting lists usually consist of 100 to 400 people who want them too.
In turn, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Violence against Animals recorded an increase in the amount of visits to their shelters by 600 percent. It clears that especially quarantined Britons are interested in cocker poodles (cockapu), French bulldogs and other dog breeds, which are relatively easy to care for.
Residents of Britain reported about huge black cats who attack sheep
Photographs of a large black cat hiding in the bushes were published by residents of the village of Tedburn St. Mary. In addition, traces of paws were observed, presumably belonging to the same predator, next to the remains of a deer. The forest near the village is now rarely visited by residents due to the regime of self-isolation and this, as local residents suggest, could give courage to large predators.
Dr. Terry Moore, a specialist in large predators of the feline family, said that reports of large cats, presumably cougars and panthers, had been received several times before from Hertfordshire, a four-hour drive from Devon.
Among locals there is an opinion that the huge cats, which they call "Beasts of Bodmin" and "Beasts of Dartmoor", have been living in the swamps of Devon and Cornwall for more than a decade. In July 2019, the owner of the zoo in Dartmoor said that he personally observed three cougars freely walking in the wild, which should have been transferred to the zoo at least three decades ago.
It is believed that panther and cougar could be let out by circus artist Mary Chipperfield after the closure of her zoo in Plymouth in 1978. Since 2000, more than 200 reports of large cats walking through swamps have been recorded in Devon and Cornwall.

British company received many orders for Grenadier 4x4 SUV
Showed the car to people at the end of last week at the festival of elegance in London. At the same time, Ineos has already received more than 17,000 pre-orders from those wishing to buy a car - interest in development is much higher than expected.
The company will begin to collect real orders with prepaid closer to the launch of the Grenadier 4x4 serial production, that is, at the end of 2021. Until that time, Ineos is planning to do a large amount of work on the project - so that the SUV is reliable and meets all the declared characteristics.
Grenadier 4x4 is called the ideological successor of the classic Land Rover Defender. The project is financed by the chemical concern Ineos, but the development of a turnkey car is outsourced by the Canadian-Austrian company Magna-Steyr. The novelty was shown with a universal five-door body, but in full the family will also include a three-door and a four-door pickup.
The National Oceanographic Center of Great Britain conducted a study according to which 12-21 million tons of plastic waste and various debris were identified in the Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 200 meters.
Scientists from the UK have declared a significant underestimation of the plastic pollution of the Atlantic Ocean. According to researchers, up to 21 million tons of microplastics have accumulated in the upper waters of the Atlantic alone, and about 200 million tons of plastic waste may be present in the ocean. Earlier it was reported only about 17 million tons.

Where is Benjamin Lasnier’s 2016 rumoured “girlfriend” today?
In 2016 Danish Singer Benjamin Lasnier took a short trip to Hong Kong. He was photographed at Pacific Place shopping mall with NAG rugby player; Taianna O’Neill who is rumoured to have recently been intimate with “Tik Tok Star” Max Martin. Benjamin later posted a picture of himself alongside Taianna on Instagram. Fans responded immediately to this post. Taianna then commented “My everything”. The two were spotted in public twice during Benjamin’s visit. Taianna refused to be interviewed about Benjamin she claimed; “Benjamin and I have no relationship of any sort I was just a lucky fan!” One of her own friends who accompanied her that morning shouted “bullsh*t”. Taianna spent a whole month trying to hide under a black off white hoodie. During that time frame she had her hood pulled over by somebody else in public recognising her. Taianna had been left alone after being pulled aside in the Gucci shop located in IFC mall on November 17th 2016. She screamed “I am not with Benjamin and I don’t want cameras in my face so please go and get a life!” But let’s get to the real question? Where is Taianna O’Neil today?
From Research we have found that Taianna and Benjamin no longer follow each other on Instagram. However, Taianna is followed by a few major platforms such as; @LukeLeeOfficial who is verified with a total of over 40 thousand followers, @Bencharlesworth_ who is verified and has a total of 1,835 followers, @amberwisee daughter of former football player Dennis Wise with a total of 9,221 followers, @Jesse_Grylls son of Survivalist Bear Grylls with a total of 8,702 followers, @francesca.beckenb the youngest and only daughter of former football player Franz Beckenbauer with a total of 1,558 followers. It seems that Taianna has many links to fame. She recently posted on her Tik tok profile [@annaoneill] a screen recorded video of herself scrolling through her Instagram feed with the video soundtrack playing “a - yo a famous person follows me check”. This video includes verified profiles [such as @LukeLeeOfficial , @Deanahmad_ , @stefanjames , @stephaniebaessler , @bencharlesworth_ , @stevie_bradley1] liking her Instagram posts. Taianna also has another video on her Tik tok platform which has over half a million views. Could the ex girlfriend of Danish singer Benjamin Lasnier be a potential rising star? She apparently only started her Instagram in October 2019 she had gained over 3,000 Followers in under 6 months. For somebody who isn’t famous that is incredible. In March 2016, a few months prior to being spotted with Benjamin in public; Taianna posted on Instagram “omg one direction just sang happy birthday to me at the concert tonight [Smiling Emoji]”. Who is this girl? How does she meet all these people? There is nothing online on her rugby career past the year 2017 so she must have moved on from professional rugby but it appears that she has taken on a bigger role in life. It is not certain what that is exactly as she does not seem that open with her life on social media however, from her instagram highlights she seems to be living this “Jet-setting lifestyle. It is unclear whether Taianna is still in school or not as she seems to constantly be travelling. Taianna has really changed since 2016 and her instagram has given the impression of a “glow up”. She no longer goes by “Taianna” instead she goes by “Anna O’Neill” It appears that she has taken up an interest in photography and water based sports. I wish Taianna all the best and nothing but success in her future! I also hope Benjamin is doing well.
